Privacy Policy

Viscount Systems, Inc. (“Viscount”, “we”, “our” or “us”) acknowledges that privacy is an important concern for visitors to our web site, www.viscount.com (“Site”) and makes every commercially reasonable effort to protect the privacy of its visitors. The following guidelines were developed to help you (“you”, “your”, or “user”) clearly understand what information about you we obtain from our Site, how we use the information once we obtain it, and whether we disclose it to anyone. This Privacy Policy applies only to our Site, and not to any website of any third-party, links to which may appear on our Site. By visiting or using our Site, or submitting any information through our Site, you acknowledge and agree to our collection and use of information as explained in this Privacy Policy and any subsequent modifications or updates to this Privacy Policy, and you agree to be bound by our terms of use posted on this Site (the “Terms of Use”), a link to which is as follows: http://www.viscount.com/terms-of-use/

We respect your right to privacy and we understand that we have an independent obligation to comply with applicable laws and regulations that govern the collection of personal information, and that personal information must be collected by lawful and fair means.

Viscount Systems, Inc. is a company incorporated in Nevada and has its principal place of business at 4585 Tillicum Street, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada V5J 5K9.

Collection of User Data

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: Viscount may automatically collect through its Site certain non-personally identifiable information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Site, webpages viewed, information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type, among other things (“Non-Personally Identifiable Information”). Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you. We only use Non-Personally Identifiable Information in the aggregate to assist us in analyzing how frequent visitors use parts of the Site, and in conducting internal marketing and web site performance research. Viscount may share this aggregate data and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to third parties engaged by Viscount in the normal course of business. In these situations, we do not disclose any information that could be used to identify you personally.

This Privacy Policy does not cover the collection of information by cookies or other methods by third parties. Any information submitted by you to a third party or third party website will be controlled by that third party’s privacy policy and practices. We do not control how these third parties collect information or by what means such third parties may use their own cookies to collect information about you. We therefore encourage you to review the privacy policy of any company before visiting or submitting any information to any third party website. 

Personally Identifiable Information: You may be asked to supply contact information in order to receive information or materials that you request from the Viscount.com website, which may enable us to identify you personally (“Personally Identifiable Information”). For example, Personally Identifiable Information may include, but not be limited to, your first and last names, email address(es), physical address(es), telephone numbers (mobile or landline), company name, job title, or any other information you provide. The Personally Identifiable Information we collect in this manner is not used for any other purpose, except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. We may use third-party services in the ordinary course of our business, and therefore we may provide some of your Personally Identifiable Information directly to third party entities. In all cases, the use of this Personally Identifiable Information by third-party entities engaged by Viscount will be limited to performing services for us. In addition, we may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf which may include order fulfillment, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, deleting redundant information from customer lists, analyzing data, marketing services, and customer service. Such third parties may have access to Personally Identifiable Information in order to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

We may use analytics programs and service providers, such as Google Analytics, which can use first party cookies to report on your interactions with the Site. These programs and service providers such as Google Analytics may collect information including, but not limited to, how often users visit the Site, what pages they visit on the Site, the time of each user’s visits to the Site, whether you have visited the Site before, and what site referred you to the Site or that you were viewing before visiting the Site. We do not use any information collected from such analytics programs or service providers to identify you personally nor do we combine any such information with Personally Identifiable Information. The analytics information is used to analyze usage of our Site and/or to improve our Site.

Opt-out Policy

We may at times send you e-mail communications with marketing or promotional materials. If you prefer not to receive such marketing or promotional e-mails from us, you may unsubscribe completely by emailing us at unsubscribe@Viscount.com.

Please note that opt-out requests may take up to 72 hours to process. Please also note that at times we may need to send you e-mail communications that are transactional in nature which are communications you will not be able to opt-out of. If you would like us to provide you with additional access to any Personally Identifiable Information from our database, please send a request to: info@Viscount.com and we will try to respond to you within 72 hours. We are not responsible for removing your Personally Identifiable Information from the lists of any third party or third party website who may have previously been provided your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Use and Disclosure of Information

Viscount is the sole owner of any user information collected through our Site.

Among the reasons that Viscount may use your Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information are as follows: (1) to market our services and products to you and other visitors, including but not limited to, analyzing data to send more targeted messages to you or visitors; (2) to monitor your use of our Site, which may entail use of your Personally Identifiable Information or Non-Personally Identifiable Information; (3) to conduct research and analyze data to improve our Site, products, or services; (4) to deliver email messages, updates, newsletters, service announcements, or to respond to customer service inquiries; (5) to monitor and prevent fraud, diagnose problems, and estimate demographic information; (6) to fulfill product and service requests or transactions; (7) to comply with and meet any regulatory requirements required by applicable law, rules or regulations; (8) to protect our Site, products, or property, or users of the Site; (9) in the event Viscount is acquired or bought by a third party; (10) to engage in any other lawful activities we believe are consistent with the foregoing; and (11) when required by law or to protect against legal liability. Please note that the foregoing list is meant to be illustrative and not exhaustive.

We may also provide or obtain any of the above services through third parties, such as Google Analytics, which may necessitate sharing Personally Identifiable Information or Non-Personally Identifiable Information with them.

Viscount will retain and use your information, which may include Personally Identifiable Information, as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. It should be understood that although we use reasonable practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your Personally Identifiable Information or private communications will always remain private. Viscount makes every commercially reasonable effort to safeguard the confidentiality of your Personally Identifiable Information by using security techniques to safeguard such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside of Viscount. However, when it comes to transferring or providing information over the Internet, there is no such thing as “100% security,” and any information you provide therefore, including your Personally Identifiable Information, through the Internet is always at some risk of being disclosed.

Cookies

The Site uses “cookies”, a technology that installs a small amount of information on a user’s computer, usually a text file, to perform certain functions such as permitting the Site to recognize your future visits using that computer. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the Site. For example, the information provided through cookies is used to recognize you as a previous user of the Site (so you do not have to enter information every time), offer personalized web page content and information for your use, and otherwise facilitate your Site experience. You may choose to disable or decline cookies if your web browser permits, but doing so may affect your ability to access or use certain features of the Site.

You may stop or restrict the placement of our cookies, Google’s cookies and third party cookies on your computer by adjusting your web browser preferences or a “Do Not Track” setting in your web browser. If you do so, you may still use our Site, but this may interfere with some of its functionality such as your ability to automatically sign into the Site with a saved password.

You may also clear or flush cookies from your computer via your web browser settings. You may also wish to use a Google Analytics opt-out web browser add-on. Information on this option is available at the following website links:

Social Media Icons, Websites, and Widgets

The Site may include social media features, such icons linking to social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and may include social media widgets such as the Facebook “follow us” button, the “share this” button, or interactive mini-programs that run on our Site. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on the Site, and may set a cookie to enable such feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets may either be hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with such features, and your usage of such third party social media sites in the event you are referred to one from our Site, are governed by the privacy policies and practices of the companies providing such social media sites, and not our Privacy Policy and practices.

No one under eighteen (18) years of age is allowed to use the Site, provide any Personally Identifiable Information or receive our email distributions. We do not knowingly solicit or collect Personally Identifiable Information from children under the age of thirteen (13) or anyone under eighteen (18) years of age for that matter.
